The ghost of a long dead male hunter is sitting at a ghostly bar, telling a story.
"Me and my hunting partner...we were looking for carru. Krath, the hunting had been bad. Nothing but gurth and tok to be found for weeks. This is pretty disturbing when you make your living that way. And so we were resting our mounts by the skeet den, in a baobab grove, all sad and worried. And this half-giant come up to us.
"He rides all around us, yelling. 'Hello' then 'Hellooo'. From one direction then another. This was odd and kind of scared us. Then he rode up to us. He said, did you know where I was? And, playing along with him, I said, sounded like you were -everywhere-. That pleased him. And he said he was everywhere. So I asked him if he'd seen any carru where he was.
"So he started yelling for carru. Carru! Come here! I have a present for you! Then he turned to me and whispered, it's a trick, I don't really have a present."
The hunter pauses for a sip of whiskey and a snicker.
"So then he said, I gots a plan! He said, I gots big brains! I shout out carru mating call! I told him we'd try to kill it before it took advantage of him. But I don't think he understood what I meant.
"And he stared around then turned to the south. I make call there, he said. And he put his hands around his mouth and fucking howled, Arrrrrrooooooooooooooooooooo! Arrroooooooooooooooooooo!
"It was soooo loud. And he kept doing it. We were laughing so hard. I said, 'Damn. I feel a little aroused myself.' Not as dumb as he looked, he glanced over at me and said, Yeah, works good on the females. Which made us laugh harder.
"Me and Tyre joined in. Aaarrrrrooooooo! Loud as we could. The poor half-giant was getting soo tired, his voice was cracking and wobbling but he kept going. Arrrroooooo! His face was getting all red. I started getting very impressed.
"He grabbed hold of one of the branches on a baobab tree, thrashing around, Arrrooooooo! Aarrroooooo! His voice was all hoarse and he was yanking around on that tree..and he...and he..."
The ghostly hunter has to interrupt his story for a long period of guffawing. Finally he resumes. "He fuckin' pulled up the tree by the roots....an'...an'....still howling....and he finally just keeled over on his back, tree flying off.
"And he said...I don't think I paid that old man in Luirs enough for the carru mating call. Next time I'll give him more!"
I don't remember that half-giant's name, but it was my first PC on Arm and my first real interaction with a half-giant and whoever you were, thank you! It was in 2012 and I'm laughing so hard five years later that I've got tears in my eyes, remembering. Funny thing was, they found him dead not long after, with six dead carru around him. Which fit in with the story perfectly!
